Last week. Hmmmm.
Amelie has been doing symmetry in her book as well as in Mathletics. Actually so has Maddy, along with 2D and 2D shapes and today, that annoying equation which has something to do with a triangle and a hippopotamus. And we’d have got there too, had I not failed to add up to 18 actually 🙄
Fran worked REALLY hard all last week and is being very dedicated. I’m impressed with her. Working hard at gym, at work, at music, at being kind and helpful and a good sister and daughter. Maddy is soldiering on with “trying” instead of “don’t try in case I get it wrong”. Amelie has been reading for England. Josie is obsessed with writing and words and I’m enjoying helping her explore them. She’s doing the same baby steps the older two did but I’m so much more relaxed now. If they can read, she will. It doesn’t matter when.
Tuesday we had a music lesson and I went to work and did several meaningful things 🙄 😆
Thursday was a highlight really, where we fitted in more than we’ve done in a day for more than six months nad made it through smiling. Nay, laughing in fact 😆
We ate cheap lunch out together.
We had a bit of a row with a pharmacist who thought it was odd enough that I had been prescribed high dose folic acid while on a maternity exemption for a baby I had already had to question me about it in front of all the girls and the queue. 🙄
That particular episode prompted Fran to tell me quietly afterwards that it was all okay and if we had another baby, they would all like it and yes it would be scary but they wouldn’t mind. She shouldn’t have to be comforting her mum really 🙁
We also signed up with a new doctors surgery, following an encounter with one who told me I just needed to try harder to be happy about the children I did have and not look back for the one I don’t. 🙄 🙄 🙄
All this created some confusion as it meant we came home with much stuff, including lots of new books and some bottles to wee in. That night a very confused Amelie asked why we needed to wee in a bottle to join a library!!! 😆 😆
We took delivery of a book written by a dear friend and home educator.
I think we got ours by accident as it has not actually been released yet!
Friday we got lots of work done and had a gym lesson. Amelie could round off flic by the end of it 🙂
Saturday was a running around gym/ballet day and a fun shopping trip for me and Maddy. The Fran’s gym friend C came back to ours for a sleepover, which was lots of fun. She likes Hama Beads, so she was in good hands 😆
Sunday had much playing, a contact rugby match for Max and Maddy and much crafting, gaming and more for everyone else.
Yes, yes… clever. Dentists is tomorrow 😉
